Hsu Jian, various blade lengths

The blades are crafted in high carbon spring steel and have a pronounced center ridge and distal taper, producing exactly the right degree of stiffness and a very audible hiss in the cutting stroke. The Ming-style steel guards have an embossed dragon symbol, while the open-ended pommels facilitate the fitting of a tassel. A unique feature is the "duck-bill lock" in the bottom of the scabbard, which securely holds the sword in place. The blade is not razor sharp, edge thickness approx. 1mm. 

Premium quality, made by Hanwei.
